Re: Gm 2 Bruins vs Hawks

The Canadians were missing some very good players and the most obvious played for the Hawks!! Did you ever wonder why Bobby Hull didn\'t play and other greats like Gerry Cheevers because they were playing in the WHA and Eagleson would not let then play. If you get a chance try to watch the documentary on the Summit Series, it\'s awesome!! The best part of the documentary is when a few Canadian players had to jump over the boards to save Eagleson from being arrested by the Russian Army during the game, they came over the boards swinging their sticks and the Army raised their riffles, as they took Eagleson across the ice to their bench he gave the finger to the Russian crowd.
Paul Henderson scored the game winning goals in game 6, 7 & 8!!

i saw Hull play with the Jets as a kid. Toronto had a WHA team called the Toros. saw Hull get in a scrap and lose his hairpiece. there was a WHA version of the summit series in '74 during which Hull played......do you see that?
